Snyder no-hits Marble

Wes Snyder topped a big night at the plate with an even better one on the mound, firing his first career Legion no-hitter in Ely's 7-0 win at Marble Wednesday night.

The lefthander, a senior-to-be, held Marble without a hit and faced just two batters over the minimum in a dominant performance.

Snyder also helped his own cause, going four-for-five at the plate with five runs batted in. His three-run homer to center capped Ely's five-run sixth inning.

Ely, which improved to 11-5 overall and bounced back from a 6-2 loss to Deer River on Wednesday, scored single runs in the first and fifth frames and opened things up in the sixth against losing pitcher David Zilbert.

Snyder singled in a run in the first and doubled home Greg Helget in the fifth.

Those would be all the runs Snyder would need, as he fanned nine Marble hitters and issued just one walk.

Ely scored five times on five hits in the sixth, with Koschak and Nick Mathews ripping run-scoring hits before Snyder's mammoth blast.

On Wednesday, Ely was foiled by Deer River's Eythan Stangland, who took a no-hitter into the sixth before yielding two runs on a pair of hits. The lefty fanned 10 while getting the win.

Deer River also capitalized on four Ely errors and got three hits from Travis Kane. Jack Carter's two-run home run in the fifth helped seal the victory against Helget, who was touched up for nine hits.

Both Mathews and Riley Bernsdorf had run-scoring hits for Ely.
